Mad - Poem by Kevin East

Call me mad as a love crazed moon
Beaming to a lonely sea
Aching so silently
Bleeding since you left me.
Mad, as the night for the gift of sight
Candle lit your cheek
Your beauty had me seek
Words only the dumb would speak.

Say i'm insane as i ride grey train
Your smiles are left behind
Some hobo wind will find
And fly them in my mind.

Put me in chains every time it rains
Or i will run with you
Down leafy avenue
And bid the world adieu.
Inject my soul if protocol
Brushes the heart from my sleeve
Why would the sun ever leave
A darkened world to grieve?

Give me a pill if you fret that i'm ill
When love wears a countenance pale
A thousand wild horses would fail
To drag our passion to jail.

Yes, call me mad as sweet lips part
For blowing a kiss to starred night
Or fllying my hopes like a kite
Real love keeps embers alight.

    Great descriptiveness - Really like this opening lines:

    'Call me mad as a love crazed moon
    Beaming to a lonely sea
    Aching so silently
    Bleeding since you left me.'
